City Nature Challenge, I'm participating via the Global Project

In 2016 a challenge between San Francisco and Los Angeles started the City Nature Challenge (CNC) which has now grown into an international event that motivates people around the world to find and document wildlife in their cities. 2021 City Nature Challenge

Although the challenge this year is from Apr 30, 2021 - May 3, 2021 and Victoria B.C. does not have a community challenge, I have decide to participate this year anyway albeit I just started yesterday with little planning. There is a global project that I joined which has been created https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/city-nature-challenge-2021-global-project

The reason I am putting this in my journal is that I realize there are a few people who "follow" me and perhaps they will see the entry and be inspired to participate or even just have their weekend observations included.

The COVID-19 pandemic has modified how this year is organized in locals run big programs but people are still participating.

Be healthy, happy, and safe

E.C. Manning Provincial Park Annual Bird Blitz

Habitat photo for Lightning Lake from Lone Duck Campground 2

Participated for the second time at the annual Bird Blitz hosted in Manning Park by Hope Mountain Centre and was able to add some species to the BC Parks project.

Fantastic to have also enjoyed their evening program which included a presentation by John Neville who has produced eighteen sound guides to bird identification.

Spectacle Lake Provincial Park

Spent about an hour walking around Spectacle Lake. Besides the photographed species I also saw and/or heard Barred Owl, Cooper's Hawk, and unidentified Swallows.
I am trying to add species to this project:

Virtual Naturalist

Broke my leg August 6th and have for the most part been a virtual naturalist since until some time in October hopefully. It has given me some time to go back on some other's posts and see if I can help with the identifications.
